The Stately Home Collection at Baker Furniture has a rich history.. The pieces are steeped in hundreds of years of traditions, with their roots set in palaces and castles of England, Russia, Scotland and Ireland. World renown English antique and architecture authority Sir Humphrey Wakefield founded Baker Furniture’s Stately Home program in 1980. He remains a consultant to the program since, helping recreate furniture pieces originally commissioned by royalty over the last three centuries.

Interior designer Jill Erwin selected a Stately Home chaise as one of her three favorite pieces at Spring High Point Market. Erwin loves the shape, velvet, and craftsmanship of this chaise. She says a chaise is a versatile furniture item that can serve as a room divider in some rooms, as a daybed in other settings, and an additional lounging area in a bedroom.

The beauty of this collection is “every duplication preserves the integrity of the original by following the old-world tradition of furniture making,” according to Baker Furniture.
